Bill is right. You're pretty well maxed out with passengers & cargo in that Mercury. A tent might be in order. Towing a trailer (of any size) could be putting all those people in danger. It would be very difficult for that TV to make an emergency stop.

I weighed my 2720 fully loaded and it was right at 3700# and there are just 2 of us. Carrying enough cargo for 7 people, you would be hard pressed to keep the trailer under 4000# (the GVWR on our 2720 is 3956).

You need a TV with a tow rating of about 6500#. You may be able to find one that has a tow rating of 5000# and a GCWR high enough to carry all those people and gear. A ford Expedition or Chevy Suburban might be worth looking into. The Nissan Armada has a tow rating of 9000#.

Thanks Bill & Harvey, as Buddha says, "Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."
